Almost anything can be improved with music, as evidenced by tuba-accompanied balcony serenades, operatic State of the Union addresses, and yodelled bank statements. Tune your ears to the sweet sounds on stage with today’s Groupon: for $17, you get one adult ticket to "A European Tour of Resonant Classics" on April 9 at 7:30 p.m. at North Bay Symphony (a $34.50 value) in North Bay.
"A European Tour of Resonant Classics" introduces audiences to a musical spectrum of well-travelled European classical works. The evening spotlights compositions by Beethoven, Schumann, Grieg, Tchaikovsky, and Mendelssohn's lesser-known compositions for electric mandolin. Under the steady hand of lauded double bassist and music director Thomas Jones, the program's pieces sport renewed passports from Scotland, Norway, Spain, Russia, Switzerland, Germany, and France for a tuneful trip to what are known as classical music's capitals and The Muppets' next all-inclusive vacation.
The Symphony's home in the historic 1920's Capitol Centre Theatre on Lake Nipissing has augmented its status as a community outreach organization, which has played host to the Toronto Symphony and the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestras, as well as music education programs that benefit nearly 1,500 adults and children each year and light year.
